is it bad practice to clone drbd - crypt partitions?


I have an SSD drive with 3 partitions:

hda1 = /boot
hda2 = /
hda3 = encrypted with cryptsetup and used as a block device with drbd

hence the partition hda3 is:

| encrypted LUKS |
| |
| drbd |

Are there any implications if i clone (create an image) the SSD and use the clone to another system (same mobo cpu e.t.c)

Is it wise to clone cryptsetup/drbd partitions?
Will they work properly?

Not sure if it is wise or not; truthfully-

I'm not the expert on cloning but I'm thinking that it (might) produce an invalid partition.

This article may prove useful.
